I’ve been working really hard to find a free weekend day to hold book binding classes in Featherston. I have nothing before Christmas. I’m not sure how things got so busy. I don’t even have time to make more books to sell. I suspect I won’t have a free weekend till late January or early February.
I can teach two different styles of bookbinding. The simple 4 th Century (Nag Hammandi) style, takes one two hour session and the 15 th Century (Incunabula) style, takes three Sessions of about two hours each.
I’ve slashed my finger cooking today. Slowing down my bookbinding. The school holidays, which start in three days isn’t going to improve my output either. Still I get some nice wooden boards on the weekend.
Things have ground to a halt over the school holidays. I’ve got half a dozen books half done. I’m in search of some cheaper glue that is suitable for paper and wood. A nice big bottle of it so I don’t have to worry about glue all the time.
Apologies for not putting up updates. I’ve been sick for three weeks. On the way up. So I’ll be posting something sensible in the near future.
About Bookbinding Web Page
I use this web page quite a lot when doing research. I find its difficult to navigate, but its worth it for all the information buried in there.
While researching how to make early printed books I cam across this description of Ms. Latin 13. I found it really useful in helping me work out how to make this type of book.
